  • Hot-rolled - Steel for gas cylinders

    Hot Rolled Strip Steel

    Tata Steel’s structural steel for gas cylinders offers excellent deep-drawing properties and weldability for ease of processing.

    The grades allow for reliable normalising of the welded gas cylinder - retaining strength that contributes to optimal safety in use.

    Hot rolled steel for enhanced end performance

    Ympress® Laser offers fast, efficient laser-cutting with superior performance.

    Specially prepared to enable fast cutting with a clean cut edge, it is ideal for automated processing and guarantees production efficiency and consistency.
